Raiden Rising WIP New Shoulder by SoCoPhDPepper Raiden Rising WIP New Shoulder by SoCoPhDPepper
Probably my very last Work in progress picture. This is the 2nd version of the shoulders, and i took the picture with the eyepatch on. Hehe, sort of threw the head stuff on so i guess it isn't quite sitting right but it gives the idea. Also, the full let of fake fasteners have been placed on.

I definitely like how these new shoulders sit a little better. And the eye-patch i guess lets me sort of see through it a little little, just enough to get an idea of how far away stuff is.

Hopefully i can get some real photo's of it soon, instead of super red fluorescent lighting, lol.

Raiden is a character from Konami's next Metal Gear Solid Rising game due out supposedly sometime next year =D

General Consensus seems to be :icondatassplz: LOL

I think foam/vinyl is good for making a single tone armor, but i think craft foam alone is probably easier to work with, and since your painting it, you have a lot more color options. It looks like lightnings armor is a single tone so, it can probably be done either way in my opinion, its just the vinyl really adds some extra strength to the craft foam if you want the armor to be a little bit tougher, and it also lets you run the armor through a sewing machine if you have a sewing machine that can handle stitching through those kinds of materials. The gold trimmings on Lightnings bracers would probably be the time consuming part for vinyl/foam, since vinyl itself kind of resists a lot of adhesives.

I sort of followed other peoples how to do craft foam and vinyl tutorial, lol. I think the one i originally saw was an Al from Full Metal Alchemist, with his posts on cosplay.com, but i sort of modified it because they don't sell Weldwood with the orange label in California, and used 3m Super 77 spray adhesive in its place.

lol, very difficultly. Theirs a zipper on the back of the titanium body suit so i can get into that using that. The head piece also has a zipper in the back under the wig. The black body suit has an invisible zipper in the front and a few fasteners. The bracers have a zipper on the bottom between the rusty colored pieces. The calves also have zippers in the back. The arm and thigh pads sort of slip on. Hehe, but yeah.... very difficult.

LOL, i'm not going to lie, i'm so jealous of your TGS trip. But it was well earned, your sweet raiden is pretty amazing and remarkably accurate to the figurine =P I bet Kojima was going "Oh boy oh boy oh boy" in his head, lol.

Honestly I thought he was going to think "Oh it's a girl version of Raiden, who cares." But he actually got that I was from the figurine! And thank you, it's one of my favorite costumes to wear. No pants is remarkably comfy haha.

Looking good. Be careful of wearing any eyepatch for long periods. You can get dizzy once you remove. Experienced it with one of my costumes.

hehe, thanks for the heads up. I can actually kind of see through that eyepatch material though so hopefully i don't experience that vertigo.
